The Murmuration Festival gathered thought-leaders in the areas of art, science, music, and tech into the Cortex Innovation District for a weekend of engaging with the public and sharing work and inspiration. Arcturis has a close relationship with Cortex as several of our incubator projects fall within this up-and-coming tech development in St. Louis.
We knew that we wanted to be involved with this festival in some capacity and were thrilled when we were presented with an opportunity to not only donate our time, but our design expertise. Our graphics team was able to take a hands-on approach with the design and fabrication of the festival’s signage. I was able to design and then physically build the festival’s signage in Cortex’s very own Tech Shop.
It was refreshing to work on a project that required me to get out of the studio and away from the screen. I took a woodworking class at the Tech Shop that helped with the implementation of the signage. This project was not only rewarding because I was able to give back to my community, but it was a rare and fulfilling opportunity to bring a design to life with my own hands.
